    As of right now Hawaii still has a chance.

    Ah, but what about those of us who are in Australia? Should we still worry about the world ending? I mean, the only advance warning we’d get would be the annihilation of New Zealand, and it’s difficult to tell at the best of times…

    I looked it up: The Ashes is an international cricket match between England and Australia, just won by England. Cricket is impossible for us Colonials to understand, but dukedoug has a valid point about our politics. I live here, and I don’t understand them.

    I have learned a tiny, tiny bit about cricket. It’s hard to take a sport seriously that has a field position called a “silly midoff.”

    Pab, this arc is hilarious! Thank you!

    Tomorrow: the most predictable punchline I’ve written in ages.

    And for those who missed it yesterday, you can get a peek behind the curtain with my blog post about “digital inking” here:

    WC Fields, ghost. Cleveland was one of his whipping boys.

    We don’t understand cricket, but they all want an American baseballer on their team over there.

    Duke: you might find dem, repub and Teaers significant if one decided to rescind our nuclear umbrella. Or you can watch our Super Bowl like the rest of the world on the TV we invented over the networks we’ve forged.

    If they want Rupert and his soccer nets back down under, most of us would gladly send him.

    freeholder1: Actually, it was a Scot who first invented television. John Logie Baird. Farnsworth just came up with a much better system.

    And for the “Barfly and Schrodinger” fans in the audience, there’s a show on BBC Radio 4 you might want to check out. You can listen to it online (even in the States) through January 4:

    Dukedoug and Sandfan

    The Ashes play a prominent role in the later Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy books and radio plays. I would have had no idea about this whatsoever if I had not gotten the radio play scripts, as I had not read the later books.

    They got elected, now it’s the gentleman from Teacaucus. High entertainment, let’s see’em dance. I prefer rugby.

    Eldo: It’s an affectionate tribute. I really wish I could have met the man in person but never did. He and Walt Kelly are the people who most influenced my writing. Every time I have a silent third panel, for example, that was something I learned from reading “Peanuts” at an age when most kids are still reading Dr. Suess,

    My understanding is that he told everyone to call him “Sparky,” and I believe in calling a man what he wants to be called. Absolutely no disrespect ever meant.

    A good mystery to read is “Playing for the Ashes” by Elizabeth George. You learn about what the phrase means, and its a terrific reading.

    Eldo: Regarding Kelly’s display of emotions, I think Churchy LaFemme was probably the most expressive of all of the characters. Kelly could use those eyebrow-like flaps on Churchy’s skull to express pensiveness, terror, bemusement, and joy without even having ol’ Turkle open his mouth.

    The only person I think has come close to Kelly’s range of motion in recent decades is Bill Watterson. You can really see a lot of Albert (physically) in Hobbes.

    Pab, I love your appreciation in old strips. I really wanted to draw my own back when I was a kid in the 50s.
